UPDATE (March 7): Deluxe Digital Cinema have sent the trailer to U.S. cinemas to place with Kong this week. And international Warner Bros. social media accounts have started rolling out a series of announcement clips, teasing the trailer’s release tomorrow.
Original post follows:
While we’re waiting to get solid word on whether we’ll get new looks at Wonder Woman or Justice League with Kong: Skull Island next week, it now appears Warner Bros will use next week’s film to kick off marketing for probably their riskiest big budget release of the year. The first trailer for Dean Devlin’s directorial debut Geostorm has been rated today by Alberta Film Ratings and Consumer Protection BC, clocking in at just under one-and-a-half minutes.
Devlin is most famous for working with Roland Emmerich on the Independence Day films and Stargate; with Geostorm marking his directorial debut, so we are curious to see how it all turns out. We are fully expecting the trailer to arrive in the next week in time for Kong, and we will be sure to update as soon as we get more information.
As a man heads into space to prevent climate-controlling satellites from creating a storm of epic proportions, his brother discovers a plot to assassinate the president.
Starring Gerard Butler, Abbie Cornish and Ed Harris, Geostorm is released October 20 in the U.S. and UK.
